while syrian kodesh fighters and the government in damascus have reached an agreement for the syrian army to enter the free region to help repel a turkish offensive turkey launched operation all of branch last month to clear a free of kurdish y p g fighters who they regard as terrorists linked to the p.k. k. a senior kurdish official told the reuters news agency that syrian government troops will deploy to some border positions within two days so let's get more on this now from a solid binge of a who is live for us now in istanbul what do we know about how this agreement came about between the syrian kodesh fighters and the syrian government. miriam the specifics of this agreement are not yet clear but we've heard at least one people's protection unit commander telling various news outlets including elves
there that they have struck a deal with the syrian government to try and protect these areas from the offensive that the turkish government has launched against them this is been ongoing for the last several days we've been hearing about peace talks that have been ongoing between these kurdish fighters and this ever charlotte government but there have been sticking points including the demand such as the mandatory conscription of all kurdish fighters of fighting age giving up all of their bases and military units in sight the free and region and also giving up all of their military bases and heavy best weapons to the syrian regime we don't know yet as in how much of this was agreed upon and what are the points that they have come to a conclusion to but what we know from these kurdish fighters is that the syrian regime would be coming to their help some sources have been saying that it could happen as early as tomorrow we don't know the specifics of whether it will be troops that will be joining them but that it would be weapons that would be coming
to them and this is going to become clear in the next forty eight to twenty four hours but these could be fighters have been facing very stiff resistance and putting up very stiff resistance to the kurdish to the turkish advances and a number of turkish soldiers have been killed in this offensive it was launched on the twentieth of last month and so how might that turkey respond to this new development. well turkey's been clear in saying that it has launched this offensive to make its borders secure it considers kurdish fighters the right an extension of. kurdish groups that operates on the turkish soil and turkey has been fighting it for years and years but this is a complicated issue because at the at the kurdish fighters that turkey is fighting are also allies of the united states in another part of the border region so it is going to be a tricky one for turkey to play because if the syrian government announces that it
will secure the borders it won't allow infiltration from the border areas then it will be a difficult choice for turkey as for whether it wants to continue this operation against kurdish fighters or it agrees to what the syrian government the bashar assad government offers it on the border on a free ok from as. a thank you. that is there are still to come a memorial service is health as a long time opposition leader morgan tsvangirai. out of a look at the art of to pirate the mastermind behind one of the finest gardens and the wild. fresh twenty or thirty centimeters of snow in southern germany to get a bit too much for one two people start falling not about what was there of course
to go to be cleared of the major roads but i think i won't take long the sun should be out after all once the clouds go inside and day breaks once again the picture we've dug out this is from monday is of sunshine the most jimmy but a classic run down to the north you'll notice three degrees and it is not particularly warm any remaining falling out of the sky stuff is let me down in croatia some of this was rain more likely on the adriatic coast coming in behind a lot of cloud twenty mom with two left and in london dining powers to be three zero course but there's still snow on the ground here and the be a bit more snow to come i think for the french alps and maybe switzerland as well good rain fall otherwise it's quite looking picture for good part of europe for the time being hasn't been the case so the central eastern mediterranean now the first storms gone through levant were another one gathering here and it's the tail end of what the rain you saw in the adriatic it abuse increasingly strong winds i think in algeria and tunisia so a drop in temperature thirty analogy is about saving two days more especially the
potential for rain returns and i think quite heavy stuff as well. more than a century ago britain and france made a secret deal to divide the middle east between them now we can draw him. but what were the last thing effects of this agreement that there was a regional set to sites because it's at those borders were drawn with consulting the people after that with the. psych speak out lines in the sand at this time on al-jazeera.
welcome back with al jazeera a look at the day's top stories now israeli prime minister has once again taken aim at iran saying the nation is the biggest threat to middle east security benjamin netanyahu speaking at the end of a major conference in munich. hundreds of people have attended the funerals of two palestinian teenagers shops and killed by israeli forces in the gaza deaths have added to tension on gaza's border with israel. and syria in kurdish fighters in the damascus government have reached an agreement for the syrian army to enter the region to help propel a offensive. moving to the us now i wednesday's mass shooting at a school in florida continues to dominate the agenda the blame game extended to the role of the f.b.i. and whether the agency was fit for purpose on friday the f.b.i.
admitted agents had failed to investigate a tip off about the nineteen year old gunman nicholas cruz who had bought the gun used in the shooting legally that prompted the u.s. president donald trump to tweet that the f.b.i. had spent too much time investigating allegations of collusion with russia during the twenty sixteen election campaign and on sunday the issue of russia collusion dominated the weekly talk show circuit the real issue right now is how do we how a president of the united states not saying what everybody knows to be true what you're into freedom to sixteen they're going to if the feared two thousand and eighteen and we have got to do everything we can to make sure that they do not on the ball in a burka democracy this is a huge deal and that we don't have a president speaking out on this issue is a horror show and we've got three democrats and republicans together despite the president to go forward to protect the integrity of american democracy. well it proves there's no clues into this point there's no collusion in terms of the
facebook ads the other social media activity director mueller made it very clear in the indictment that any participation by anybody whether was in the truck campaign or the sanders campaign which they said was also being assisted by this effort by russia that all that was done unwillingly that no one participated in the knowing fashion. well here in london film stars a turning out well that having red carpet back actually in support of the me too and time's up campaigns just as they did at last month's golden globes actresses are wearing black in person academy film awards or fast as at the royal albert hall the star of darkest hour in supporting actress nominee kristin scott thomas was one of the first stars to arrive as the night kicked off. the next step is to keep the conversation going to keep the conversation firing and to turn words into actions you know we need to close. this i think that their slogan is absolutely right time is up that's over i don't speak for all women
because every woman has a voice it's just that some cannot use their voices so while cycle is opportunity i'm going to stand in solidarity with any and every single woman who has had their life by some form of discrimination and that's why we turn up the volume on campaigns like time's up and we continue to usually lies why it's important to speak up and speak out. catherine stansell joins us now from outside the royal albert hall in london so tell us more about what british actresses have been doing to support the campaign against sexual harassment. well most of the people in attendance have been wearing black to the support ceremony to show that solidarity for the times that movement there were also not just stars or members of the film industry falso activists people who are fighting for the rights of women. both in terms of harassment in the workplace violence against women on sort of thing so
there were several people invited the awards from from those tickler areas as well also earlier in the day there was a letter that was released by by actresses the british actresses in a few changes in the industry almost two hundred of them signed a letter saying that there must be an end to the sexual harassment in the workplace and not just in the film industry across all industries and it was announced in that letter that there was a fun day u.k. equality and justice fund that's going to be set up many actresses and actors have donated over a million dollars to to try to help support people women who have been impacted by sexual harassment violence abuse as well as addressing issues like gender pay and quality so the bafta is really being used as a platform for this kind of thing right a bit of politics injected into the ceremony this year what about the films themselves what are we watching for what's likely to create the most buzz.
while at the moment everyone is watching the film the shape of water because it's a leading the nominations with twelve nominations in fact and in all of the big categories best film best director best actress bust original screenplay so many people are expecting this film to take on quite a few of the awards when it comes to best actor a lot of people feel like it's really just down to two people in the nominees daniel day lewis for his turn and phantom thread where he portrays a contrary or. in one nine hundred fifty s. britain and gary oldman for his betrayal of winston churchill in darkest hour he had won a golden globe for that performance so it's really down to those two best actress the favorites are not gunning for trail of a dying actress. in film stars don't die in liverpool and frances mcdormand is seen as a favorite as well for her portrayal of a grieving mother seeking revenge and justice for the rape and murder of her teenage daughter in the film three billboards outside of adding missouri so those
are the categories people are really watching those are the tight races are tonight indeed stiff competition thank you very much catherine standstill outside the royal albert hall in london. now a memorial service has been held for morgan chang the former opposition leader in zimbabwe who died early this week after a long battle with cancer now there are concerns that infighting within his party the government's main opposition could cause a split just a few months before elections on which has more from harare. zimbabwe's president in a similar god what pays his respects to morgan tsvangirai family for years the main opposition leader was assaulted and arrested by police for demanding free and fair elections the ruling zanu p.f. party then led by robert mugabe charged him with treason and called him a puppet of the west the new president says it's time to end old rivalries it is fruitless. search. for men and women as the election in
